Emperor POV | Sea World San Diego | First Ride | Now Open

By theFUNnelCakeBlog | Mar 03, 2022
Emperor at Sea World San Diego is be the tallest, fastest, and longest dive coaster in California, as well as the only floorless dive coaster in the state. The coaster opens to the public on March 12, 2022. Season Passholders got an early look starting March 1, 2022. The ride was originally announced in 2019 and a 2020 opening was planned.

Named after the world’s largest penguin, the new coaster will mimic this species’ amazing underwater diving ability. Climbing to 153 feet with feet dangling in the air, riders will be suspended on a 45-degree angle at the crown of the ride before plunging down a 143-foot facedown vertical drop, accelerating to more than 60 miles per hour. Riders will also experience inversions, barrel roll, Immelmann loop, hammerhead turn and flat spin as they race along the nearly 2,500 feet of track. Each of the floorless ride cars will hold 18 riders in three, six-person rows. This is the first seating configuration of its kind in North America.

SeaWorld San Diego is the only place in North America to see the amazing Emperor penguins. Guests can watch the playful antics of penguins tall and small including Emperor and King penguins, plus smaller Adelie, Gentoo, Chinstrap and Macaroni penguins at the Penguin Encounter indoor exhibit.
